    I so want 8tb 2.5" drives.
    The 4TB ones came out like 3-4 years ago.

    I wish we can have such capacities but I highly doubt it will come anytime soon.

    5100 5200 eco is 2.5" sata ssd upwards capacity of 7.68TB sometimes you see them on ebay for $1500 or less if you're lucky. surely with QLC replacing TLC we'll see those much cheaper within next 2yrs and maybe 15TB drives.

    honestly though you wouldnt want 15 TB of SATA SSD cause backing up takes forever, sata is to slow now. 15TB at 500MB/s read write would mean backing up entire drive would take ~9-10 hrs rofl.

    Yes, but you wouldn't back up 15tb at once.

    maybe we'll see some pcie 4 or pcie 5 nvme SSDs that runs at like 5GB/sec read/write and about 4TB-8TB in size QLC. only about half hour to copy paste stuff assuming they're all large block sized sequential files.
